"Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" has blasted itself off into money. During its first day it made $60.6 million, ranking second behind "The Dark Knight" Adjusted for ticket price inflation, though, "Revenge of the Fallen" would slot in fourth place, behind "Spider-Man 3" and "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest."

"Revenge of the Fallen's" first day included an estimated $16 million from its midnight opening. Only "The Dark Knight" and "Star Wars: Episode III-Revenge of the Sith" had bigger midnight debuts, pulling in $18.5 million and $16.5 million, respectively.

Over its two-day haul before the weekend it made $89.2 million and now over the weekend, its total domestic gross is at $201 million. Yeah, it is making money.

"The Proposal" dipped 45 percent this past weekend and "The Hangover" has made $213 million worldwide on a budget of $35. Very nice math.

"Up" has is now the top earner of 2009 (with "Star Trek" in a close second), but "Transformers" is only less than $100 million behind.

Next week can the kid factor take down "Transformers?"
